Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

2002 Land Rover Freelander Owner Comments

Freelander 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 17,900 miles


I own a 2002 Freelander with less the 18,000 miles. Brake pads went from good to grinding metal in one day with no signs. I bought extended warranty for $3,000. Since the truck has under 50,000 miles Land Rover will not cover. What kind of service is this. Road side assistance did a great job picking up my truck but I was informed that my local Land Rover has no cars for loaners due to another facility closing in eden prairie Minnesota. So here I sit with no wheels. If this is not going to be repaired under any of my warranties you will see a lawsuit brought against Land Rover. Look at the complaints on this truck for brakes, these are factory defects. You should not have to replace brakes and rotors every 10,000 miles.
